Royal blue is a deep, vivid blue, and as story has it, the color was created for a competition to make a dress for Queen Charlotte (1744—1818), hence its royal name.
Royal blue is associated with superiority. And like all blues, it can symbolize reliability and trustworthiness. It can also be calming and harmonious because it is reminiscent of the sea and the sky. However, having links to the emotional feeling of being “blue”, it is also used to express sadness or depression.
The color goes well with silver, off-white, and black as well as shades of yellow and its complementary color, orange.
